In 2019, the Wrangler Science and Conservation Program partnered with Basf, a company that, through science and technology, works to foster a more sustainable future. With this association Wrangler launched the first collection of jeans and sustainable cotton shirts, The Wrangler Rooted Collection. The North American company expects that by 2025 all the cotton of its garments comes entirely from sustainable production fields.
